From Jody :

           I got this Chevy 1.5-ton from a family friend in Michigan. I had a rain delay when going to pick it up. Mother nature was drenching Michigan and my buddy could not get to it. I sent the transport company for it finally.

           The owner gave him to me, all I had to pay for was the transport to Florida. I used Express Auto. They did a great job and it was very reasonable considering the cost of fuel today. It was approx. $1200 total from door to door, and that included the winch service because I did not want it started until I could service the engine.

           He arrived on the 4th of July from Flint Michigan. He does run and is 100% original and complete. When he finally arrived in sunny Florida, I drove it around the neighborhood laughing like a little kid. I am looking forward to restoring him back to his factory original condition. Check out the crazy stop light under the bed ... original? How about the heater? Pretty cool, huh?

           You and your staff are doing a great job and this is a great website. I sent for the "restoration kit " from Chevrolet that I found on your website. Great stuff. I can't wait to restore this oldie. I hope I can find the parts and pieces I will need. I know for sure it needs brakes. I will be on the Bolt website a lot once I get going.

           Thanks for the opportunity to learn more about these old vehicles. I restore Mopars as a hobby. I am sure I can restore this one. I look forward to visiting this great website often.

Thanks again,

Jody Lopez
